This anthology is heavy on the fantasy at the expense of science fiction but the stories are all still good. The stories collected here cover the gamutboth in concepts and writng styles and most readers should find a new author they will want to read more of. Some of the stories are a little long but there are no real duds in this collection. Well worth the investment.

As with most anthologies, the range of interest in each individual piece ranges from intense to "Huh - what were they thinking when they included this one?" (Ogres of East Africa). The Blue Afternoon That Lasted Forever might be the best of the bunch, and has the most science underlying its premise. I found the most entertaining to be How The Marquis Got His Coat Back, which I determined before I realized it was authored by Neil Gaiman. And the most intriguing, while still being relatable, would go to The Thing About Shapes to Come. I've read better anthologies, hence the moderate rating, but between these covers are some worthy stories and ideas.

Too much fantasy and not enough science

I love this series, and being a fan of SF I was excited to see the new entry. The collection is one great story after another.
